It's more or less both, tires and the bike causing Ducati's problems. But you can expect them to work through it pretty quickly, atleast with Stoner, given how strong he was last year.

But there is no doubt, both Yamaha and Michelin have come out fighting this year with their set-ups. Bridgestone has a little catching up to do, and I bet there looking to China to do most of it!

Hmm......I don't know about that one. Getting the rear wheel to break away does have it's advantages. But look at the lap times this year bro. They are smashing the previous years times. Taking into account that alot of that has to do with the improvments on other parts of the bike, and being on a smaller displacement most of the time means higher corner speeds. Plus the 800cc bikes almost make the same top end as the 1000cc did. But with traction control they can just rip the throttle and not have to worry about whip'in the bike out from under them. Plus, watch alot of the GP riders and even Superbike guys........doesn't even look like they have traction control turned on some of the time. They can spin the rear all day through the corners if they really wanted to.

I know there is alot on controversy over rather there should be traction control on the race bikes or not. But if you ask me, if the riders didn't want it, they would tell them to take it off the race machines. Don't you think? I guess it goes with the saying, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

But I will agree, I do miss the days of watching guys like Gary McCoy(spelling?) lighting it up out of every corner. (but guys like him tend to wreck alot too.....and you don't win races on the grass laying down:/: )
